Postdoc in Eco-Evolutionary Dynamics of Communities

Updated: about 2 months ago
Job Type: FullTime
Deadline: 19 Aug 2022

two and half-year postdoctoral position in eco-evolutionary dynamics of host-parasite communities is available in Jan Hrcek’s lab [http://lab.hrcek.net ] at the Biology Centre, Czech Academy of Sciences, Ceske Budejovice, Czech Republic [https://www.bc.cas.cz/en/homepage/ ].

The candidate will develop a project on the interface between population genetics and community ecology. Our laboratory utilizes a novel experimental community model system of wild Drosophila species and their parasitoids from tropical Australia. We are able to perform multigenerational laboratory microcosm experiments and track eco-evolutionary dynamics in fine detail. The candidate’s project will be complementary to Jan’s ERC-CZ grant investigating relationships between the maintenance of genetic variation within populations and species diversity within ecological communities. These processes are typically studied separately, but likely interact to structure diversity in ecological communities. The laboratory is an international team of PhD students, postdocs and technicians and the applicant will have the opportunity to work extensively with other team members. The laboratory can provide substantial resources and support for exceptional research. Further, the candidate will collaborate within the PI’s wide network and establish new links for this project.
